"Who doesn't like children????"

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

That's a question I heard as I was walking back from an errand at school. "Who doesn't like children???" One student was asking another, in a big crowd. I said, "Well, there are some people who don't like children very much." The kid looked at me and said, "What's WRONG with someone like that???" I had to laugh, he was just so incredulous - I guess he's never encountered anyone who doesn't like kids! Which speaks well for our school, I'm hoping!

Then there was the girl in my class who looked at the drawing I was doing (I always do an example of the class project, to demonstrate how to do it, so I can draw on my own work instead of the students') - we're enlarging using a grid - and she said, "Ms. Schwartz, you've done a very nice job." I thanked her. She patted me on the shoulder, and said, "I think you've earned an A+."

They just crack me up, they're so innocently funny!

    That is so funny. I remember my high school Spanish teacher letting us know that there are people in the world who don't like kids--it was eye opening.

    As the saying goes - Kids say the darndest things. They can be great and also a pain but where would we be without them.

    Trust me, there are some students in my classes who I DON'T particularly like - but usually I don't like them in a classful - I like them better individually, when they aren't showing off for their friends by being bad.

    Don't like ALL children, frankly: some are real pills. Rarely their fault, but their it is.

But these kids sound lovely!

    There are days that I do not like children but that maybe because I have 4, no I am just kidding my life would be nothing without them!
